Bringing young kid in fm Northampton yet sending Armstrong out on loan.I know therewill be reasons and that is why I am not a manager/coach.

Would like to see a bit more movement over the weekend for another CB then use the start of the season to assess our requirements.

I know most will come on shouting striker but with Perez, Mitrovic and Cisse we have a reasonable front line all be it young and untested. With deJong and Gini in the centre with Cabella who could now be played as a genuine number 10 and with Colback and Sissoko I think that is a pretty good set up.

optemistic for this season. Top eight

i'd like to see a winger and Defender

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 19:11:03
And that is for starters Des we also need adding and pruning the 25 man squad
Perhaps after tomorrow certainly Southampton and the next 2 matches McLaren will see how desperately they needed

I am lost that he percerviers with Obertan and Gouffran
and with Tubby Mike only seeing numbers I am afraid no defender will be bought until Williamson is either given away or sold.

Agree4 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 00:34:57
The squad is full of average/under performing plyers. I can't help but think that if we changed our position on transfers it would actually create a more valued squad.

I wonder what kind of impact a seasoned international defender like ron Vlaar or John Terry might have on the rest of the defence including williamson.

The same could be said for midfield where a player like lampard would have a massive impact.

Mike Ashley would flog more shirts and give the club a more global appeal from a brand perspective.

Whilst the squad need trimmed I think like all teams you need a balance, if you look at the impact KK had on the players around him at newcastle you do wonder wether we should be taking the plunge on an older player

Agree2 Disagree1

01 Aug 2015 10:02:12
I expect h'll go on loan immediately as there were a number of championship clubs after him as well. if not immediately then in January.

Is he any good.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 09:09:24
Hope he is not the mystery striker we have been waiting for

Agree with Shearer looks like Sissoko on the way
so perhaps 1 or 2 players may be signed from the proceeds
because Fat a. e will not dig into the 5m first payment he has just received from TV & the other 25m he is sitting on.

See what happens against Southampton as they have had a good pre season with their first team unlike Newcastle playing poor teams and with our poor players.

Agree7 Disagree1

31 Jul 2015 19:32:09
50m from TV now and 25 M held back
It is the same story the players we need will only be signed

No he doesn't, why are people so negative if we buy no one people moan if we buy 3 players people moan because they are not the ones they want if we buy 6 players people moan because 'we need someone else' stop being so pessimistic and looking for problems, it's boring

Agree0 Disagree10

29 Jul 2015 02:12:00
Various reports that we will bid about £13m for Austin. We don't seem to be willing to pay the full 15 QPR want due to concerns over his shoulder injury.

I don't think people should read too much into SM's interview, purely just trying to manage expectations imo. He knows we need a top class centre back bought in but as he said, it has to be the "right" players, no panic buys.

Believable2 Unbelievable15

26 Jul 2015 23:37:20
stevie mac was lying through his teeth about not knowing whether or not more signings are coming. he know's there is a least one more after mbemba.

Yes no more panic buying. I let's buy some decent players now!!! before January panic buying kicks in.

No more singings apparently McLaren says he is happy with the squad
So another less than mediocre season ahead.

Believable17 Unbelievable4

26 Jul 2015 19:35:19
Where has he directly said no more signings, he said he was happy with the squad before the start of pre season yet we still made 3 signings

Agree4 Disagree15

26 Jul 2015 20:43:38
JT : either this is just Mr Infallible mis-reading something, or he's stirring the poo to wind you up. McClaren is reported today to have said he expects more signings, one or two this week, possibly. You can safely ignore 9/10ths of what old misery guts posts.

What's going on with mbemba? What's the hold up?

Believable2 Unbelievable0

26 Jul 2015 10:13:48
maybe they found something in medical, the Chronicle seems to suggest he passed that. The only other thing can be visa/work permit issues. Though again, press indicated that Utd had sought re-assurances about this before proceeding with the transfer.
Maybe they found something which concerns the age thing? that's speculation on my part but could be anything really.

Agree2 Disagree1

26 Jul 2015 12:35:19
visa I think

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2015 13:51:06
Visa was submitted on July 22nd but FA cannot convene a meeting until July 30th at the earliest. Medical, fee, compensation all ok visa is only hold up.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2015 02:33:16
even if we make more signings a less than mediocre season would beat my expectations. Mclaren needs a good six months bedding in his system and changing the squad. We can't even give away the likes of Williamson, in 12 months we lose a lot of senior players which will free up spots. I think this will be a slow burn, I don't expect anymore signings this window.

Agree5 Disagree0

27 Jul 2015 08:00:08
Which is Deseree exsctly the way Pardew
Speculation of new signings has been rife
even from SC himself, he has a great opportunity to assemble a good team & perhaps still will.

I think with not selling anyone they have been caught in the headlightds and as per usual Ashley will not release funds from the 50m he received up front from TV

Let's hope I am wrong because without 2/3 more quality players Newcastle will once again struggle.

2 weeks to kick off when again reality will kick in

Agree11 Disagree0

27 Jul 2015 19:33:33
reality hasn't gone away vida, we have needed two cb's for 12 months now.

Agree7 Disagree0

25 Jul 2015 12:13:12
ed what is the latestvwith Dani koks, this kid looks promising and physically looks like he could even make the first team. I'd prefer we took a gamble on some younger players than 15m for austin

{Ed001's Note - all I know is that he has impressed on trial sorry.}

23 Jul 2015 17:11:04
A Portuguese journo has tweeted that Jao Moutinho is coming to NUFC for €13m. This would be a coup if it came off but where would he play?

23 Jul 2015 18:09:57

23 Jul 2015 18:19:03
But that Portuguese Journo doesn't exist. He'll probably play in Arsenal's midfield would be my guess.

In midfield. That's where he plays

{Ed024's Note - Fair Point.}

Thank god we aren't getting Messi as well then!

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Jul 2015 10:24:14
I see the rumours about Thauvin will not go away but TBH I'd rather have the young lad form Feynoord, Boetius. I think he is a better team player and will create and score more than Thauvin who allegedly has a dodgy attitude. When you consider Thauvin will cost about £12m and Boetius £2m its a no brainer and the "spare" £10m could be spent elsewhere.

Believable6 Unbelievable1

23 Jul 2015 16:33:44
Totally agree that Jean-Paul Boetius would be a much better buy than Thauvin and for a fee of £2m. it's a no brainer. Check Boetius stats as they compare favourably with Thauvin's. We'd be buying another Perez. The guy works his socks off for the team and scores and creates goals to.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jul 2015 09:36:14
let's not forget, he transferred to Lille then immediately to Marseille as he decided he did not like Lille as a city. If he struggles to settle in France then there's a good chance he'd struggle in Toon.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2015 09:37:53
PS. the young lad from Feyenoord would be great, especially at the price being quoted, but I feel we still need to purchase an experienced player or 2, not early 20's but mid 20's with a few hundred games under their belt.

Agree3 Disagree0

22 Jul 2015 22:59:46
Talk of left backs being looked at by NUFC, who would you want? Willems? Kurzawa? (May be a bit pricey)

SM has also been talking a lot of players that the club are apparently close to getting that have "gone under the radar" or so to speak. Any guesses on who they could be?

Believable2 Unbelievable19

23 Jul 2015 08:55:07
Strengthening of squad is great let's hope he not selling anyone decent or back to square one

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2015 09:14:48
I still wouldn't be surprised to see Ashley Cole arrive. and to be honest I don't think i'd be as disappointed as I was when I first saw this rumour at the start of the window. his experience at left back would be good for us.

Agree1 Disagree5

23 Jul 2015 10:20:41
Agreed Nik, he could really help Haidara improve his defensive skills as he is great going forward but the first job of a defender is t defend and he is not the best so Cole for a season would be a great shout.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2015 12:41:13
I just don't think the club are going to bring a 34 year old in with no sell on value

Agree0 Disagree10

22 Jul 2015 11:16:09
Chancel Mbemba due for medical in next 48 hours after £8.5million fee agreed. He's in Paris at the moment sorting out his visa

I think the friendly against Portland definitely showed we need strengthening in defence

Believable4 Unbelievable16

22 Jul 2015 12:42:53
And a few more places
When Obertan ( who can't cross a ball ) looks good it shows how bad we were
Ayoze lioke a headless chicken Birigi hopeless Sako get rid
Goufran pathetic Ferguson out of hos depth and Abeid worst game he gas played for us

Aarons now in the shop window

Wake Ip Man and tell Schteevie

Agree19 Disagree4

22 Jul 2015 12:52:31
I think more to the point it shows that Williamson is out the door. If he was not injured why did he not play?

Perhaps it was a bit of cleverness by McLaren to make a point to the board that money needs spent on 2 cb's.

Agree13 Disagree0

22 Jul 2015 12:49:01
You ate silly Willis
He is talking to PSG

Agree18 Disagree1

22 Jul 2015 13:17:05
seems like they refused to play some of our guys as they don't like playing on astro turf.
which begs the question - why arrange a game on astro turf? this was totally within our control.

Vida you need to get a grip. I bet you if we signed messi and Ronaldo you would find the negative .

Agree3 Disagree16

22 Jul 2015 22:27:39
positives for me are Aarons and Steve Macs comments. At long last we have a manager who tells it like it is and doesn't patronise us. The other positive is that was essentially our 3rd round FA cup team in Pardews reign.

If Ashley is serious about winning something then this showing was great evidence that the majority of players are not capable and need to be shipped oot.

I agree, sunday will give a far clearer picture as to the strength of the squad and what is required in addition to the two CB's, a left back, a winger and possibly another striker. Ayoze needs time to develop and we can't rely on Aarons with his injury background, young kids should not get the amount of injuries this lad has and perhaps his body isn't cut out for PL football?

Agree13 Disagree0

22 Jul 2015 22:57:36
Desree totally agree r.e SM's comments compared to pardew/carver.


I am feeling optimistic and I am sure there are many others who are feeling the same, since when was the last time under Ashley that we spent £34million on three players (wij, mitro, Mbemba)?

Agree2 Disagree19

23 Jul 2015 13:52:38
Des you are dead right, what a waste of travelling they could have arranged friendlies in Europe and seen also some potential players for the Toon.

Agree13 Disagree0

21 Jul 2015 11:18:38
mitrovic confirmed. A good piece of business. watching his youtube clips, I'd love to see him play alongside loic remy or lacazette. he looks to have good awareness but doesn't seem that mobile and needs pace around him, which we don't have a great deal of

Believable7 Unbelievable0

21 Jul 2015 13:03:04
Berahino would be a good partner for him imo

Agree2 Disagree17

Agree14 Disagree0

21 Jul 2015 16:51:33
I agree desree I would much rather the toon spend around 15m on Berahino or Chicarito than on an Austin/Carrol type of forward as well

Agree2 Disagree1

21 Jul 2015 20:57:22
I'd like to see a more experienced striker personally. Not saying I don't want Berahino but a 20 and 21 year old up front might be asking too much, then again they might go and score 40 goals together.
Need an experienced CB in addition to Mbemba as well.

Ed when did Newcastle put in a bid for Austin

{Ed002's Note - A couple of days ago - Wednesday I think - but it was not accepted.}

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Jul 2015 10:17:16
how large was the bid? did it surpass Leicester's £12m?
Why has it not been reported in media? Surely QPR would leak this info to try and start an auction for the player.

{Ed002's Note - The bid, like the one from Leicester was not accepted and QPR has stated there have been no acceptable bids. "Leaking" things to the press do not get auctions going - it is simply not how things work. I expect a second bid from Newcastle but I am not so sure the player will be making an early decision.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2015 23:19:16
apparently the initial bid was 10m up front with add ons for appearances. Concerns on the injury front but also a misplaced sense of leverage. The club can't understand why the price is so high when QPR have been relegated and Austin can leave for free in 2016. QPR rightly believe Austins goals can help get straight back up, meaning they will benefit from the 80 tv revenue.

This deal won't happen and charnley needs to focus on other targets.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Jul 2015 09:35:02
If Mitrovitch won't commit, we need to ditch him and move on. If we stand still waiting, we may as well be moving backwards.

It's his dad who's standing in the way of the deal. No hate should be thrown towards Mitrovic, he wants to come (said he was a Newcastle supporter when he had an interview at partizan), his dad wants more money for him though

hi Ed, do you know what is happening with Mitrovic and the deadline he was supposedly given?

{Ed002's Note - Mitrovic is still considering his options - "deadlines" really don't help, particularly if the player has different aspirations. As I have said all along, Newcastle are an unlikely option, unless it is a stepping stone, but they remain the keenest. But it would still be a bit of a surprise if he headed there. Consideration of other options has to include game time - of which Newcastle will offer him more.}

looking like its between newcastle and Villa but from what i've heard newcastle are looking strong favourites to sign him. Apparantly might be late next week because qpr are on pre season tour.

{Ed007's Note - A lad on the AV site posted in that Austin's wife doesn't fancy moving up to your neck of the woods. I've no idea if it's true or not but worth sharing the rumour.}
